Old Stock Certificates may still be valuable even if the stock no longer trades under the name printed on the certificate. For a flat fee of $49.95 per company, our Old Company Research Service will provide you with a brief status profile of companies whose original identities have been lost due to a change in name, merger, acquisition, dissolution, reorganization, bankruptcy or charter cancellation.
